On Sunday, June 26, 2016, my daughter and I had lunch at the Italian Delight, 640 Warrior Drive, Suite 117, Stephens City, Virginia. The location is in the Warrior Center at this address, along with several other businesses and the Asian Restaurant in Suite 101.
Hours are Sunday-Thursday, 10:30 AM-10:00 PM; Friday-Saturday, 10:30 AM-11:00 PM. The phone is (540) 869-1600. The Web site is http://www.italiandelight.biz/, and dine in, take-out, and delivery services are available.
The Italian Delight has a patio out front with four tables with umbrellas. The entrance is at the side of the building and has a vestibule with a refrigerated display case of bottled drinks. Inside, the fairly small room has a counter on the left and three booths to the right along the front windows.
Further back on the right, benches along the wall have tables and two booths are on the left back here. A TV screen is on the wall behind the counter; another is on the back wall, and a third TV is toward the front. Pictures of scenes in Italy decorate the walls. Some of the kitchen is visible through an opening in the wall behind the counter.
Menu categories are Specials, Appetizers, Soups, Salads, New York Style Pizza, Sicilian Pizza, Specialty Pizzas, Stephens Cityâs Best Thin Crust Pizza, Hoagies, Hot Subs, Philly Steak Subs, Wraps, and Chicken Subs.
Also, Fatboys, Calzone & Stromboli, Buffalo Wings, Kidsâ Menu, Dessert, EntrÃ©es, Gluten Free, and Beverages. Lunch Specials are offered from 11:30 AM-3:00 PM every day, and are listed on a separate small menu.
Our server was Jackie, who brought us small rolls and marinara sauce for dipping to start with. My daughter ordered Onion Rings from the Appetizer Menu, an Eggplant Parmigiana Sub with Oven Melted Mozzarella Cheese from the Hot Subs Menu, and Cannoli from the Dessert Menu.
My choice was Eggplant Parmigiana without spaghetti or pasta from the EntrÃ©es Menu. It came with a tossed salad; I had ordered blue cheese dressing, which came in a plastic package. Our orders were served on large oval ceramic platters which hadnât been heated. The eggplant had been peeled, and was topped with melted cheese and marinara sauce.
The Italian Delight is one of several restaurants in the area owned and operated by the Lanzetta family, including Donatoâs, Italian Touch Pizza, and The Millwood Seafood and Steak. The food was good and I rate it as a Keeper.
